One item that stood out was his statement that the carrier to be built by Burt Rutan for the CXV will also be used for SpaceShipTwo. The SS2 is considerably smaller and I was under the impression that it would use a somewhat bigger version of the White Knight.

Having one vehicle doing two tasks would seem a reasonable approach but I’m surprised that it would be economical for (eventually) daily space tourism flights to use a carrier that is a lot bigger than necessary. The Very Large Aircraft (VLA) is really, really large. Maybe the SS2 is going to be bigger than generally assumed….
